From snuggly hoodies to street-inspired sweaters, our editor’s pick of the best knits for autumn and winter – and how to style them

The chic hoodie

Hoodies are here to stay, but the loungewear staple has had a chic-over for winter. This relaxed grey hoodie swaps the usual jersey for a soft-to-the-touch knitted fabric, making it perfect for both casual WFH looks and smarter out-and-about outfits. Layer over a striped long-sleeved T-shirt and team with a pair of ankle-grazing, off-white sweatpants for a laid-back at-home outfit, and chuck a classic trench coat over the top when you need to leave the house – check out how Instagram stars wear a trench coat here. If you’re heading to work, try wearing the hoodie with your favourite jeans and a tailored black blazer for a catwalk-inspired street-meets-sportswear vibe.

The stylish cardigan

The coolest knit on the block thanks to Katie Holmes and that knitted-cardie-and-bra combo, the cardigan is the WFH super staple that’s video-call-ready and the extra layer you need on early chilly winter days. This V-neck pure-cotton ribbed cardigan will slot effortlessly into your winter wardrobe – the neutral shade and versatile relaxed fit will work with everything from a double-denim-blouse-and-Mom-jeans combo, to pretty dresses and luxe loungewear.

The puff-sleeved pullover

The arrival of winter means it’s time to add chunky knits to your wardrobe and, when temperatures really plummet, look to layer lighter-weight knits (like our bestselling merino jumper) to your outfit mix. Crafted from our soft-as-a-cloud yarn, this funnel-neck grey knitted jumper refreshes the knitwear classic with dropped shoulders and on-trend ever-so-slightly puffed sleeves for a pretty but relaxed vibe. A versatile wardrobe staple, team it with an animal-print midi skirt and white runners, pair it with your favourite jeans or introduce it to your loungewear wardrobe. It comes in five shades from classic navy to joyful bubble-gum pink, plus it’s made from recycled polyester.
